“Former President, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings says long-term friends of Ghana


such as Russia and China owe it a duty to make known their observations about


political developments in the country ‘on account of the bumpy roads we have


been through in the past.’ He said Ghana is going through challenges with its


multi-party democratic process and ‘we need support and advice from our friends.


We owe it to the future of our relationships’” (Ghanaweb Sept 4, 2010).





Our deep national lunacy


National follies are flowering


Pioneered by JJ Rawlings


With his broken mental furniture


He who knows it all, all


He who has no answers


Lunacy of mediocre leaders


Mirrored by JJ Rawlings


Intemperate foaming


Impetuous harangues


Impatient in thought


JJ who gave us Mills


Born of his Swedru self-orgy


JJ has called Mills names


All the cloying cruel names




Now JJ’s anti-Millsims is clear


Still craving for authoritarianism


Chinese and Russian models


Still craving for neocolonialism


Russians to support our democracy


Chinese to support our democracy


JJ & African leaders


Oh! Africans let us look within


Search for local alternatives





JJ he who demonizes all


Knows it all – right from wrong


Has never done the right things


Stole Air Force plane seats


Thumped wee at the youth


Unaccounted fifty-cedi notes


Kangaroo courts


Seized assets


Sold national assets to cronies


Criminalized Makola women


Murdered judges


Killed numerous others

Curfew & abduction


Shit-bombed press houses


Stolen wealth & materialistic life


Beat up Arkaah


BONFIRES at Ridge


FIRE-ING anti-Nkrumahism


FIRE-ING anti-Liman Socilaists


FIRE-ING anti-Kufour Ataa Ayis


FIRE-ING anti-Mills foot-soldiers





Yesterday JJ was a dictator


Today JJ is anti-democratic


Parades in Western designer suits


Uses democratic rhetoric


Turns to Russia, China


For democratic credentials


JJ wants to kill the cat


Stomach politicians clap


Elites that think in herds


Political hyenas in suits





Shallow Rawlings in politics


Self- elevated expectation

JJ is his own victim


Rawlings’s victory lap


Small-minded


Preposterous


Shadowed by mental spasms


Spasms of self righteousness





Atta Mills is lost


Ghana is shipwrecked


Snailing on the sea of Atta Snail


Painting mirages in the horizon


NDC toxins unleashed on Ghanaians





JJ Rawlings


The self-righteous tin-god


The Chief Fireman of Ridge


The killer of the judges


He who knows it all


Genealogies of our failures


He who has born it all


Born rabid dogs - Amedeka


Born barber-thieves – ET Mensah


Born Socialist thieves: Ahwois

Born violence: Makola women


Born foot-soldiers: seizing toilets


Born rich politicians: PV Obengs


JJ the architect of all our woes





JJ Rawlings just foams


Foams at the mouth


Cotton-wool head


Full of barren thoughts


JJ tell us about Russian democracy


JJ tell us about Chinese democracy


JJ tell us about Western democracy


JJ and African leaders


Tell us about African democracies


Africans let us look within


Search for local alternatives


Oh, killers of the dream
